As the World Cup makes headlines, we have “碧(Ao)”, a “World Whisky” from Suntory, which blends the world’s five major whiskies (Irish, Scotch, American, Canadian and Japanese) to create a uniquely sweet, spicy and intriguing experience.
Those familiar with Japanese would know that “ao” means the color blue, but the character for the whisky is the less commonly-used「碧」(as opposed to 「青」）and just happens to be the given name of the currently red-hot Japanese soccer player who scored the second goal against Spain last week.
So if you’re rooting for a particular blue-uniformed team this week, then this is the drink for you!
This week, bar miyako is open from 7pm to 1am on weekdays. bar miyako living will also reopen from Tuesday, December 6, so we hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
The long weekend is over, but have no fear! bar miyako has lots of fun and exciting spirits to get you through the week, including Legent, a unique blended bourbon created in collaboration with Japan’s Suntory and US’ Beam Suntory, maker of Jim Beam.
Fred Noe, a seventh-generation Master Distiller of Jim Beam and Shinji Fukuyo, the fifth Chief Blender for Suntory, worked together on Legent, which is a blend of three Jim Beam bourbons: one finished in traditional oak and two which are secondary cask finished in sherry and red wine barrels. The different casks give the bourbon layers of different flavors, such as fruit and spice and oak, making it a complex but well-balanced (and lovely) spirt. Please drop by for more details or for a taste if your interest is piqued!
This week, bar miyako is closed on Monday, February 24 for a national holiday, but open as usual from 7pm to 1am on all other weekdays and from 7pm to 12 on Saturday. Hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
